Last week, it was reported that Rachel McAdams was a frontrunner for the role of Felicia Hardy/Black Cat in Spider-Man 4, but she tells Entertainment Weekly it’s not true:
â€œThatâ€™s a total rumor, I have to say,â€ the actress, who will next be seen in the Dec. 25 action-adventure tentpole Sherlock Holmes, tells EW. â€œI was hanging out in Toronto the other day and someone came up to me and said, â€˜I just heard youâ€™re doing Spider-Man 4.â€˜ And I said, â€˜Really? No one told me!â€™ Itâ€™s not true.â€ A rep for Sony Pictures concurs: â€œItâ€™s an Internet rumor, as so many things are these days.â€
That may be true, but there’s been many cases of actors or actresses denying they’ve landed a role in a film, only to be announced a little later as being officially attached. We’ll have to wait and see when official casting announcements are made.
